"Death of Nurse After Her Patient's Burial-Former Westernport Girl Dies In Norwalk, Ohio From Alleged Poisoning-
Norwalk, Ohio, Nov. 11--The death here of Miss Mary Naughton, 26, a nurse, formerly of Westernport, Md., by poisoning, was attributed by officials to her grief over the death of Boyd Bateman, a World War veteran, who died in a Washington, D.C., government hospital of tuberculosis. Miss Naughton came to Norwalk Oct. 29 with the body of Bateman, one time merchant, for burial. At his interment she appeared grief-stricken. She died Friday night in Memorial Hospital at Norwalk while under a physician's care. Whether the poison was taken accidentally was not known. Coroner C.L. Bell said an investigation was not required because she had medical attention before her death. A brother and sister from Westernport came to attend Miss Naughton's funeral and burial was made in Huron, Ohio Saturday afternoon. Bateman had been in an army hospital since 1926 and had been under the care of Miss Naughton for some months of his life."
Note: she was the daughter of Michael Francis Naughton and Mary Riordan.

DEATH CLAIMS AGED RESIDENT ~ Mr. Michael Naughton Passed Away Last Evening ~ IN THE 84TH YEAR OF HIS AGE ~ He Resided in Allegany County Since the Thirties - A Man of Fine Traits and General Prominence—Served as County Commissioner
Mr. Michael Naughton died lest evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Conrad Rahrig, Mt. Savage.  Although an aged and feeble man Mr. Naughton's death was quite unexpected. He contracted a severe cold several days ago, but was able to sit up yesterday and his ailment was  not regarded as serious until shortly before the end came, when a sinking spell from which he did not rally, seized him.  Mr. Naughton was one of the pioneer residents of Allegany county, having settled here away back in the thirties.  Shortly after coming to Allegany county he settled at Mt. Savage and a few months before his death he returned to that village to die there.   Mr. Naughton was born in County Galway, Ireland, in 1820. He came to this country in 1836 landing at Baltimore.  On the day after his arrival, he journeyed afoot from Baltimore to Frederick city where his brother, who had preceded him in settling in the United States, resided.  Shortly afterward he came to Allegany county and with the exception of a brief period spent in the South in which he was employed for a short while at Savannah, Georgia, he spent his entire life here.  In 1845 Mr. Naughton married Miss Anna Elizabeth Dean, whose father was a descendant of one of the old English families, participating in Maryland’s colonization.  The marriage was solemnized at Mt. Savage. Mr. Naughton was a shoemaker by trade, but shortly after his marriage he abandoned that occupation and engaged in farming.  In 1856 he moved from Mt. Savage to a Will’s creek farm near Corriganville, and in 1872 he purchased what had been known as the Selby place on Evitt’s creek, East of this city. He made the latter place his home until a few months ago. when he leased the farm and went to reside with his daughter, Mrs. Rahrig, at Mt. Savage.  His wife died in 1874. His surviving children are Mrs. Rahrig, Misses Kate and Margaret Naughton, and Mr. E. J. Naughton, all of Mt. Savage, and Mr. F. P. and Mr. W. H. Naughton, of this city.  In the many years he resided in Allegany county, Mr. Naughton had made a general acquaintance among the resident population and was everywhere esteemed as a man of fine traits of character.
